Kennedy joins Vickers at RAF Reserves Kawasaki

Irishman Jack Kennedy will ride alongside Ryan Vickers in the RAF Reserves Kawasaki squad for the rest of this year’s Bennetts British Superbike Championship.

Kennedy, who won the British Supersport Championship in both 2018 and 2019, started the year with the Santander TAG Yamaha team but after their withdrawal from this year’s series, the 32-year old was given permission to seek an alternative ride.

“I’m really happy to be joining the RAF Regular & Reserve Kawasaki team and am extremely grateful that they stepped in with the offer to ride for them for the rest of the season,” said Kennedy.


“I’m equally thankful to the Santander Salt TAG Yamaha team for allowing me to ride for another team for the remainder of 2020.

“My first time on the Kawasaki ZX-10RR will be next Friday’s free practice session so I’ll take it step by step and see how I get on but I’m fit and raring to go.”

Team boss Lee Hardy stepped up to a two-rider team again as they did in 2016 when they ran Alastair Seeley and Jake Dixon. Kennedy’s’ first taste of the RAF Kawasaki ZX-10RR will come at Oulton Park next Friday when free practice gets underway.

“I spoke with Jack once I had seen the news that he was no longer riding for the rest of the 2020 season; it was a great opportunity to look at expanding the RAF Regular & Reserve Kawasaki team back to two riders with a plan to carry this on into 2021,” said Hardy.

“I spoke with Ryan and explained the situation and he was very supportive of my decision to bring Jack into the team. Moving to two riders will be beneficial for the RAF and generate added exposure for not only the RAF but all of the team’s sponsors. I am looking forward to the rest of the season and working with two great riders.”
